    She can feel the beat. If you can think of it as hearing with the body? Most likely there was a mic or some other sound device layed on the floor for her so that the vibrations of the tempo were transmitted to her that way.

    I have a deaf friend, and if I want to get her attention from across the room, I stamp my foot (perfectly acceptable in deaf culture). It's the same principle. My friend, when she goes out to dance stands very near the source of music. If it's a live band she's been known to ask them to play louder so she can feel the beat better. She too is a very graceful dancer.

    Marlee Matlan is a huge role model in the deaf community.

    Marlee Matlin is a deaf actress well known for her role in Children of a Lesser God...I really enjoyed seeing her do the CP.

    Edward James Almos is also an actor...
    Very sad about his five year old daughter. We saw him last year. Great show, all the family really enjoyed it.

    Ya know I've never done the Candlelight Processional. The line always just seemed too long & I worried we wouldn't be able to get a seat after waiting all that time. Just never sure if it would be worth the time it would take out of the day. Don't they have some dining package that gives you seats with it? If so, do you still have to wait in line?

    You can do the dining package and that includes a guaranteed seat, but yes you still have to wait on line.

    It's worth doing once, by all means, if only for the music.

    I've seen it twice . Once with dining and once without . We got excellent , close to stage seats both times . If you believe it will give you goosebumps and tears will fill your eyes .
    I was wondering if there were an announcement of narrators that have yet TBA ?

    So, would that mean you could show up later & not have to stand in line for over an hour if you have a guaranteed seat? or would you still have to do that?

    I would like to try some things I never have before & this is one I've been curious about because I do love Christmas music but I also hate long lines, lol.

    The wait for the dining package seats is no where near as long as for the non-package seats.
